Welcome! Glad you are here.
My mission is to design learning experiences that are engaging, meaningful, and advances the expertise of the learner.

My background includes working in the healthcare sector and most recently with a software company focused on database management. Up until a few years ago, my primary role was as a software trainer.

But, my career journey that led me to instructional design began with losing a job. Learn more about my story here.


Annette excels at one of the hardest jobs in any organization, persuading a multitude of individuals to help with things for which they are not responsible. The result was a world class training program, Liquibase University. This built-from-scratch program literally helped increase Liquibase’s engagement with its community by two orders of magnitude. In a period of roughly 18 months Liquibase went from talking to a few dozen customers, to 3000+ students, which in turn helped drive a six-fold increase in customer count. Most importantly, Annette did this autonomously, with limited guidance other than building a compelling and engaging set up courses. She quickly learned the fundamentals of Liquibase’s complex technology, built a framework, and then solicited input and reviews from multiple functions to develop, test and maintain the widely-praised program. She is a pleasure to have as a colleague and simply one of the best in her field! – Dion Cornett, former CEO of Liquibase Inc.
